Every time I’ve sat down to tell you about the Cle de Peau Radiant Fluid Foundation, I’ve found myself checking myself. It’s by Cle de Peau which means it’s a luxury product, which means it’s expensive. Very expensive for a 30ml bottle. Which means I’ll have people moaning at me about how expensive it is. So I’ve sat on it for over 4 months since its launch last year, dithering…
But I’ve raved about it at every opportunity to anyone who’d listen, or who’d ask. I’ve convinced a friend to buy it (and I think she loves it as much as I do!) So, I finally decided that ok, I’ll talk about it on the blog. Again, please bear in mind that this is expensive, so please don’t moan about the price – it’s not as if I haven’t warned you 😛
The thing though, for the asking price, I do wish that Cle de Peau had thought to put the product in a packaging with a more luxurious look and feel. The liquid foundation comes in a pump bottle, but the deep navy body is plastic, and so is the golden cap.
It often boggles my mind when I see incongruity like this. Perhaps the cost is in the product itself (because it’s an amazing product!) but I’m quite sure a little bit of the cost could have been spent on making it look better and more luxurious. At least give it a little heft. Or perhaps the idea was not to make it too hefty so you won’t demur from taking this foundation everywhere you go – because if you travel a lot, you’ll want to. It just looks amazing when worn. There’s that word again.
